New Vhils mural in PhiladelphiaStreet Art // Tuesday, 16 Jul 2013
In conjunction with The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program,Vhils just wrapped up a new wall in The City of Brotherly Love. The artists approach to this particular wall is uniquely different than your typical mural. Vhils first wheatpasted historic photographs from Philadelphia then covered them with a layer of white paper and finished by cutting away to reveal a portion of the collaged photographs. It looks great from the photos and probably better in person. You can see it at Drury Street between 13th and Juniper streets in Philadelphia.
